Cyberworlds are information spaces and communities that use computer technologies to augment the way we interact, participate in business and receive information throughout the world. Cyberworlds have ever-growing impact on our lives and the evolution of the world economy. Examples include social networking services, 3D shared virtual communities and massively multiplayer online role-playing games.
IVA 2017 is the 17th meeting of an interdisciplinary annual conference and the main leading scientific forum for presenting research on modeling, developing and evaluating intelligent virtual agents (IVAs) with a focus on communicative abilities and social behavior. IVAs are interactive digital characters that exhibit human-like qualities and can communicate with humans and each other using natural human modalities like facial expressions, speech and gesture.
The 10th ACM SIGGRAPH Conference and Exhibition on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques in Asia will take place in Bangkok, Thailand, from 27 – 30 November 2017. The annual event, which rotates around the Asian region, attracts the most respected technical and creative people from all over the world who are excited by research, science, art, animation, gaming, interactivity, education and emerging technologies.
The purpose of WMSCI 2017 is to promote discussions and interactions between researchers and practitioners focused on disciplinary, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary issues, ideas, concepts, theories, methodologies and applications. We are particularly interested in fostering the exchange of concepts, prototypes, research ideas, and other results which could contribute to the academic arena and also benefit business, and the industrial community.
Motion plays a crucial role in interactive applications, such as VR, AR, and video games. Characters move around, objects are manipulated or move due to physical constraints, entities are animated, and the camera moves through the scene. Even the motion of the player nowadays is used as input to such interactive systems.
The ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology (UIST) is the premier forum for innovations in Human-Computer Interfaces. Sponsored by ACM Special Interest Groups on Computer-Human Interaction (SIGCHI) and Computer Graphics (SIGGRAPH), UIST brings together people from diverse areas including graphical & web user interfaces, tangible & ubiquitous computing, virtual & augmented reality, multimedia, new input & output devices, and CSCW.
ACM SUI is the premier venue for presenting research in the design and use of technologies that focus on the challenges that users face when interacting with the volumetric, 3D space we live in. This considers both spatial input and output, with an emphasis on the issues around interaction between humans and systems.
The ACM Symposium on Applied Perception (ACM SAP) aims to advance and promote research that crosses the boundaries between perception and disciplines such as graphics, visualization, computer vision, haptics and acoustics. These fields can benefit from the exchange of ideas. The scope of the conference includes applications and algorithms in any area of research that incorporates elements of perception and computer science.
The International Conference on the Foundations of Digital Games (FDG) is a major international event in-cooperation with ACM SIGAI, SIGCHI, and SIGGRAPH. It seeks to promote the exchange of information concerning the foundations of digital games, technology used to develop digital games, and the study of digital games and their design, broadly construed.
High-Performance Graphics is the leading international forum for performance-oriented graphics systems research including innovative algorithms, efficient implementations, and hardware architecture. The conference brings together researchers, engineers, and architects to discuss the complex interactions of massively parallel hardware, novel programming models, efficient graphics algorithms, and novel applications.
Computational Aesthetics bridges the analytic and synthetic by integrating aspects of computer science, philosophy, psychology, and the fine, applied & performing arts. It seeks to facilitate both the analysis and the augmentation of creative behaviours. CAe also investigates the creation of tools that can enhance the expressive power of the fine and applied arts and furthers our understanding of aesthetic evaluation, perception and meaning.
Computer Graphics International is one of the oldest international annual conferences in Computer Graphics and one of the most important ones worldwide, founded by the Computer Graphics Society (CGS). It is a yearly meeting where academics present their latest algorithms, models and technologies, and explore new trends and ideas on various computer graphics topics.
The Symposium on Solid and Physical Modeling (SPM-2017) will be co-located with Shape Modeling International (SMI-2017) Symposium as part of the International Convention on Shape, Solid, Structure, & Physical Modeling (S3PM-2017) in Berkeley, California.
2017 will be a historic year for 3D on the Web. We are seeing the explosion of WebVR and the potential of WebAR just around the corner. With WebGL now widely supported by default in modern browsers, tools such as X3D, X3DOM, Cobweb, three.js, glTF, and A-Frame VR are allowing nearly anyone to create Web3D content. Commercial game engines such as Unity and Unreal are starting to offer ways to export and publish directly to Web3D.
Founded in 1988, CASA is the oldest international conference in computer animation and social agents in the world, and has been the place to share the advancements in broad research areas related with computer animation and social agents.
Graphics Interface (GI) is an annual international conference devoted to computer graphics and human-computer interaction (HCI). With a graphics track and an HCI track having equal weights in the conference, GI offers a unique venue for a meeting of minds working on computer graphics and interactive techniques. GI is the longest running conference in the field (the first conference was held in 1969), consistently attracting high-quality submissions from graphics, HCI, as well as visualization.
This event is probably the oldest regular annual meeting of Computer Graphics community in Central Europe.
The Spring Conference on Computer Graphics attempts to cover all interesting projects from computer graphics, image processing and applications. The philosophy of SCCG is to put together top experts with young researchers in CG and to support a good communication channel for East-West exchange of prospective ideas.
Every year, VFX specialists, Animation experts as well as Games and Transmedia talents come to FMX to present cutting edge achievements, state of the art tools and pipelines, fascinating real time technologies, spectacular immersive experiences, innovative business models and more. More recently they have been joined by VR, AR, and 360° creatives who have introduced a new dimension into movie making and, more general, into entertainment. Every single one of them defines the diverse scope of the Conference program.
ACM Turing laureates will join other ACM award recipients and experts in moderated panel discussions exploring how computing has evolved and where the field is headed.
With the economic globalization, there have been many new phenomena, new situations and new challenges in the industries in each country. Thus there is a necessity for academics to conduct in-depth research on industrial organization, industrial structure, industrial development, industrial distribution, industrial policies as well as the theories of industrial security in globalization. International Conference on Industrial Economics System and Industrial Security Engineering (IEIS) is initiated under such backgrounds.
